When Morning Comes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

When the morning comes,
let it go, this
too shall pass.
Cindy Woodsmall

Stars weave dreams
on midnight’s quilt.
First rays of dawn
reveal their built.
Amogh Swamy

Imagine what our neighborhoods
would be like if each of us
offered, as a matter of course,
just one kind word
to another person.
   Fred Rogers

Oncidium sphacelatum is a
species of orchid that ranges
from Mexico to Central America
and southeastern Venezuela.
It's also known as the
Dancing-lady Orchid or
Kandyan dancer orchid
in Sri Lanka.

Some people are like unpaid therapy.
They come, they shine,
make us smile and never ask
for anything in return.
Those are important people.
   Michael Oluwaseun

Life isn't about getting and having,
it's about giving and being!
     Giovanni Sawyer

The problem with
closed-minded people is that
their mouth is always open.

Inner Peace

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Sometimes I go about
pitying myself, and all
the while I am being carried
across the sky by beautiful clouds.
Ojibway proverb

When the storm seems to
overpower you, hold tight,
for it is only passing.
Hiral Nagda

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
Saint Francis de Sales

It’s worth more than money
to feel like you have enough. Stephanie Courtney

there is a path, although
it may not be seen

Any Amount

A L O H A From Honolulu!

May the stars
carry your sadness away,
May the flowers
fill your heart with beauty,

May hope forever
wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence
make you strong.
Chief Dan George

You don't see the
things you photograph,
you feel them.
Andre Kertesz

Happiness is a choice,
a repetitive one.
Akilnathan Logeswaran.

Small acts, when multiplied
by millions of people,
can transform the world.
  Howard Zinn

No amount of regret
changes the past.
No amount of anxiety
changes the future.
Any amount of gratitude
changes the present.

New beginnings Made fresh daily!

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Nothing is more important
than empathy for another
human being's suffering. Nothing.
We have to feel for one another
if we're going to survive with dignity.
Audrey Hepburn

Early morning is the
triumph of good over evil. Absolved by light we decide to go on. Rufus Wainwright

Don't ask
what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come
alive, and go do it. -
- Because
what the world needs is
people who have come alive.
Howard Thurman

There's calm in each
and every day, we
just need to practice
reaching out for it.
Ron Baratono

Sand Castles

A L O H A From Honolulu!

We spend our days waiting
for the ideal path to appear in
front of us but what we forget
is that, paths are made by
walking, not by waiting.

Where words are restrained,
the eyes often talk
a great deal.
Samuel Richardson

Hail The Snail
She may be frail
but does not fail!

Baby Beach Jail No Sand in the Pail

Let the children be free,
to dig and to play,
To build sandcastles that
enchant them all day
Let their laughter echo,
their spirits ignite,
For the beach is a haven,
where childhood takes flight.

 I no longer ask people:
What do you think about that?
Instead, I ask:
How did you come to believe that?
That gets them talking about the
people and experiences that
shaped their values.
People are much more revealing
and personal when they
are telling stories. And the
conversation is going to be
warmer and more fun David Brooks

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia
